I read a post today by Gini Dietrich that made me want to stand up and applaud.
With the launching of Google+ has come the declaration of multiple Google+ experts who ask for money in exchange for teaching the less-social-media-savvy.
The problem with this situation is outlined elegantly by Dietrich in one paragraph:
“But this is ridiculous. As of this writing, it has been 24 days since Google+ launched. That is not enough time to figure out a) if it has business applications, b) how it truly works for networking, and c) what it’s value is going to be. For heaven’s sakes. If it goes the way of Buzz and Wave, you’ll have wasted your money”
Dietrich recommends saving your money until we figure out how it fits a business strategy. She also offers to send you an invite if you don’t have it, so that you can learn it on your own without having to spend thousands of dollars having someone teach you.
What do you think about the article and her assessment of the situation?
